Long-term Side Effects of Poor Posture
Did you know that having poor posture for an extended period of time can cause tension in the body and even produce long-term health problems that anyone in their right mind would like to avoid?
It’s true — practicing great posture not only keeps your spine in line, but it also helps protect your health and wellness. Below, Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center goes over a few of the big long-term consequences of having poor posture.
Gastrointestinal Problems / Digestive Issues
Sitting in a slouched position can certainly compromise your digestive system’s ability to perform properly, which can end up causing digestive problems and stomach problems that you might like to avoid down the road.
Nerve constrictions can occur when your body stays in a hunched position for long periods of time. Surrounding skeletal structures can come into contact with nerves, “pinching” nerves in the process, which can cause pain, numbness, or worse.
Sitting with poor posture is bad for your passageways, especially your sinuses and your respiratory system. Think of your body like a hose, and, when you sit in contorted positions, this puts kinks in the hose, which will end up causing blockages. Keeping good posture will help you breathe better, improving your health and wellness in numerous ways.
